>tfw soon taking a class on LGBT Geographies taught by a professor who specializes in Queer Studies and Queer Theory
Has anyone here taken an LGBT studies class? Like LGBT History, LGBT Film, similar? What was it like.
You'll learn about how everyone outside the LGBT community is literally a nazi and you'll learn about how not being flexible about what letter of the initilism you are makes you a literal nazi. I really hope you're majoring in something useful because you're wasting your time. I'll also bet $100 your teacher is a short haired, Jewish, woman with a hyphened surname who's either obese or toothpick thin. Nothing against the Jewish people but It's always safe to assume they're the ones in charge of extreme social leftist nonsense. Plenty of rational Jews on the moderate social left side and tons on the right, too. Not to get all /pol/tard or anything but it is kind of weird how a small group of people manage to pop up everywhere. Maybe they're driven by paranoia from their history to get as active in politics as they can. IDK
It's about countries who's borders are shaped like genitals. Some are shaped like penises and some are shaped like vagigglies. When two penis countries or two vagiggle countries are next to each other it causes a queer geographical something. Occasionally we discuss countries who borders started out penis or vagiggle shaped and then, due to various political and social reasons, change their borders to be shaped like the other. Although I've never taken a LGBT Geographies class I did take a Feminist Arboriculture class so I feel I am qualified to spew bullshit about things I know almost nothing about
No, it will focus on the spatial representation and exclusion of queer identity, as well as the transgressive use of space and place based around counterhegemonic conceptions of queer identities. There are a few geographers out there who study queer geography, usually under the umbrella of gendered spatial representations.
You should also know modern geography no longer usually deals with the topic of countries or problems at the national or global scale.
Bump. Keep us posted you faggot. I want a weekly DEDICATED thread that details the shenanigans your class engages in. I WANT PICS OF SPIDER MAN! If not, then pics of your blackboard and the course required reading. Notes would be too revealing I think.
things like how queer people migrated to urban centers is actually an extremely relevant thing when studying how queer culture and conception has evolved over time so explain to me how thats "pomo hot air'
